The audio cable from the DVD drive to the audio port on the motherboard is probably not connected. There is 3 cables that goes to the DVD drive, 1 is power, 2 is the data cable that goes to the motherboard and 3rd is the audio cable that also goes to the motherboard

How do I get my laptop to play dvds again it won t work


When you say play DVDs you mean watch DVD movies? Assuming the drive is not broken you need to use the DVD app. You could use VLC Player which you can download. It's an orange traffic cone icon.

Windows 8 won't play rental dvd


It may seem obvious, but to many it is not. To many new notebook computer owners, it is not as easy as it looks to play DVDs in their new Acer laptops. In my line of work, I get this question frequently. So here are a few quick, simple steps to get you on your way to be able to play DVDs in Acer laptops.

Check to see if your Acer laptop has the capability to play DVDs. It will be branded with the familiar white DVD logo on the outside of the drive. This is located directly side of the laptop and has a button on the DVD drive. If it is not adorned with the DVD logo, you will be limited to only playing CDs. Push the button on your Acer once you have located the DVD drive with the logo. This creates a springing motion to eject the DVD drive. Place any DVD face up in the tray and gently push it back into your Acer laptop and then wait for it to start automatically or for a menu to appear. If the DVD in your Acer laptop will not start automatically, (or when you see the menu of choices) you will need to set it up to play automatically. In Microsoft Windows, click start, control panel, hardware and sound and then select autoplay. If you have Windows Vista Home Basic Edition, Windows Media and Real Player may not play the DVDs correctly. You may want to download a free media player from download.com. http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html Place a tick in either windows software or the all software box on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for IE: Media Player you might have to try a few times to get it right You will then have to manually play the DVDs each time. Choose the action you wish Windows to perform each time you play a DVD on the acer laptop(from the dropdown menu). You will have at least two media players to choose from, or you can simply choose "take no action" which is good if you are not using the media player choices in that menu. Eject the DVD and reinsert it into your Acer laptop. All your DVDs should now play successfully with your chosen media player each time. Locate the controls on the bottom of your screen. They are standard DVD controls as well as a counter should you need to adjust volume or pause the DVD. You can press F11 for full screen view if you no longer need controls and are ready to watch your DVD.

Panasonic DVD-S31 won't play sound


Did you change the audio cable, "just to rule out" If it won't work on the Tv or stereo, there probably is a audio processor problem, or a issue with the laser pickup assembly, to repair this kind of problem would not justify the cost.

LG dvd player has no sound


The LG software supplied with this item is rather suspect in my experience. To play dvd's, try downloading Videolan VLC free from the internet. It passes my system's security and plays dvd's really well.

AVS DVD Player is a free universal player that I put on all Acer Ones that I sell. It is an excellent player, that can go full screen and handle every format. It will even play VOB files which are dvd files "ripped" from dvd discs. I have never had a failure with this program....

Your media player is not updated with the proper codec codes. If you can't find them for free on microsofts web page then download DivX player.

RE ACER ASPIRE 5735 No sound on DVD


You need to play DVDs through Acer Arcade. To do this you can turn off autoplay (use help function), or assign Acer Arcade to automatically play DVDs. If you still want to use Windows Media Player to play your DVDs you must uninstall Acer Arcade.

Compaq DVD Player problem


You need a new DVD codec. If you have a copy of WinDVD, give it an install. Otherwise, try the free codec on www.divx.com.
